Spreadin' the Love...

Valentines hasn't been a major holiday for me-not growing up, and not now.  This year, I knew I wanted to do something, but between my regular obligations and exhaustion, I couldn't really muster the strength to pull anything together.  When I pulled into the grocery story parking lot Sunday, I knew I needed to find something quick on Pinterest, otherwise I would be SOL for a Valentines treat!!!  Thankfully, this recipe jumped right out at me, and it's my new best friend.
Two Ingredient Strawberry Fudge

~LadyWithTheRedRocker~ Two (2) Ingredient Strawberry Fudge. So stinking easy!!! #fudge #strawberryfudge #2ingredientfudge #twoingredientfudge

Ok, so are you ready for it? 

1 12oz bag of white chocolate chips
1 container of strawberry flavored frosting 

Melt the chips (original recipe used microwave, I used the stovetop.  Melting chocolate is something I just can't master, so it did start to burn, but when i noticed it was clumping up as oppose to thinning, I just added the frosting.) 
When chips are melted, add in frosting-this helps the mixture liquify again because the heat melts the frosting.  Pour into a 9x9 foil covered and sprayed tray.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes, store in air tight container.


I must tell you, this recipe is comparable to the fudge I bought Sunday from Costco!  Plus, think of all the different combinations you can do when you only need chips and frosting!!!

  1. 2 things: Never melt chocolate over a direct flame. Use a double boiler method- take a small pot fill with a few inches of water. Place a bigger pot on top of that with the chocolate and melt the chocolate by way of the steam. It won't burn this way. In the microwave, do it at a lower power, stopping to mix it every so often.

    Another great 2 ingredient fudge with less chemicals is: 1 bag of chocolate chips and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated). Put chips and milk in the microwave until melted (stopping to mix every so often). Pour into a pan, and put in the fridge until hard. It's amazing too!

    Your hearts look adorable!

    1. I know I shouldn't melt like that! But honestly, regardless of how I do it, I always mess it up! Good to know about the condensed milk!
